A scenic day around Cape Town's coast with your own private guide
A visit to Cape Point is compulsory if your stay in Cape Town is anything longer than one day. We drive down the eastern side of the peninsula along the False Bay Coast via Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and Simon's Town to Cape Point, the southern tip of the peninsula. On the return we drive the western side along the Atlantic coastline past Scarborough, Misty Cliffs and Kommetjie, scenic Chapman's Peak Drive, through Hout Bay and then follow the Atlantic seaboard past Llandudno, the Twelve Apostles, through Camps Bay, Clifton Beach, Bantry Bay, Sea Point and Green Point. Watch a colony of African Penguins at Boulders Beach, drive through the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, climb up (or for the not so energetic, use the funicular ride) to the lighthouse at Cape Point, watch the seals at Hout Bay. In Simon's Town we stop at the statue of Just Nuisance, a Great Dane that received the rank of Able Seaman in the Royal Navy and was buried with full military honours!
We drive around the Cape Peninsula in a clockwise direction. In South Africa we drive on the left side of the road, and by doing it clockwise, we ensure that we are always on the scenic side and have easy access to view points along the way.

~ We follow the coastline through the little coastal villages of Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek to Simon's Town.
~ Visit the African Penguin colony ant Boulders Beach.

and Misty Cliffs to Noordhoek Village.

After heavy storms Chapman's Peak Drive might be closed due to rock falls. We will then have to make use of Ou Kaapse Weg which is beautiful in its own right, but not quite as scenic as Chapman's Peak.
We will be travelling in comfort and safety in a car with air conditioning.
The climb to the top lighthouse at Cape Point is quite streneous, but a funicular ride, the Flying Dutchman is available at extra cost.
